Watching Video over the Web

... to start 2011 with some interesting articles, I'd like to share with you two articles from IEEE Internet Computing entitled "Watching Video over the Web" written by Ali Begen, Tankut Akgul, and Mark Baugher.

Part I: Streaming Protocols

Abstract: A U.S. consumer watches TV for about five hours a day on average. While the majority of viewed content is still the broadcast TV programming, the share of the time‐shifted content has been ever increasing. One third of the U.S. consumers currently use a digital video recorder (DVR)‐like device for time‐shifting, however, the trends are showing that more and more consumers are going to the Web to watch their favorite shows and movies on a computer or mobile device. Increasingly, the Web is coming to the digital TV, which incorporates movie downloads and streaming using Web protocols. In this first part of a two‐part article, the authors describe both conventional and emerging streaming solutions using Web and non‐Web protocols and provide a detailed comparison.

Part II: Applications, Standardization and Open Issues

Abstract: In this second part of a two-part article, the authors look into applications for streaming including end-to-end mobile and in-home streaming, contrasting adaptive approaches to other video delivery paradigms, discuss the current standardization efforts and highlight the areas that still require further research and investigation.

Watching a Tv one has much problem of Noise , as when data is transmiting through any medium a distortion can happens. This makes our data quality very bad. So we have to use Echo Cancellation for removing this noise or to improve the quality of data transmitted.

Excellent research. It's truly amazing how video is taking over the web and is becoming more in-demand than regular content, photos, etc. I work in video production myself for Maverick Productions and have noticed a rise in demand for web video production from many local businesses.
